Trask on Caban:
"David is someone I've been watching develop since he was around 11 years old, and his ability to play soccer and his dedication to the game has never been questioned. David's greatest strengths are his passing ability and understanding of the game. David's background with the United States Youth National Teams and the Chicago Fire organization brings us a player who has seen a lot of high level soccer for someone still in high school. The Fire coaching staff has done an outstanding job preparing David for the next stage of his career."
